Track Name: Leave It
Scatting…..
I’m gonna leave that fear to cower down in its own shadow
I’m gonna leave that doubt to close the door on itself
I’m gonna let that anger drown itself into the flames of judgement
I’m gonna let that righteous judgment sentence itself
I’m gonna leave those lies a fallen down into a cheating hole

I gotta get myself from the fallen angels
Up to where the big trees grow
I gotta get myself from Texas
I gotta get up to New Mexico

This little light of mine
Said I’m gonna let it shine
Yeah, won’t let no one put it out
I”m gona let it shine
Cause when you curse the darkness
You block the light
If you join the battle
You’ve lost the fight

Scatting…
I’m gonna let the pride get swallowed up by its own boasting
I’m gonna let that blind revenge devour itself
I’m gonna leave that jealousy ride envy into the grave
I’m gonna leave that hate a squeezing the blood from its heart

Walk through the valley of judgement
But myself I try to judge not
Was it not by the foolishness of judgement
All of these wars have been fought
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
And I won’t let no one put it out
I’m gonna let it shine
Cause when you curse the darkness
You block the light
If you join the battle
You’ve lost the fight
Track Name: Sister River
She called out to me
I had to go
(cried out for me)
Down to the river
To see her flow
She knows something
I’d like to know
She sings beautifully, she sings nice
She sings that you can’t step in the same river twice

(Diga me x 3
Diga me x 3
Diga me x3
Diga me x 3
Diga me x 3)

If the only constant is change
Then why do I find it so hard to rearrange
My ways
If change is the only constant
Why am I so hell bent on not losin’ it?

She called out to me
Had to go
(cried out for me)
Down to the river
To see her flow
She knows something I’d like to know
She sings beautifully, she sings nice
She sings that you can’t step in the same river twice

If the only constant is change
Then why do I find it so hard to rearrange
My ways
If change is the only constant
Why am I so hell bent on not losin’ it?

(Diga me x 3
Diga me x 3
Diga me x3
Diga me x 3

Track Name: U
Everything you say and do
Comes from one of two places in you
Its either by love or fear
That we do the things that we do
Tryin’ to live by love
But fear just keeps on taking me down to the bottom
I’m tryin to live by love
But fear is where I was taught to come from
Original prayer, out there
Before I was born, I was sworn
Angels on my left
Ancestors to my right
Singin, to the flesh you’ll soon go
Forgetting all that you now know, turn it back around
And remember us again

Now I been seein’
Every one of us
Has a mountain
That we can climb
I am at the bottom
Lookin' to the top
See the higher me
One I wanna be
Said I got lost
Lookin' for the way
Following the others
Tellin’ me they know
But they don’t know
The way for me
I know the way, now
I got the power
I heard something calling me from the top of the mountain
Sayin’ there’s no one who knows better than you so understand
You are the captain of your ship
The ruler of your seas
Led by thoughts just like stars you place up in your sky

You the one you been waiting for
You the one you been searching for
You the one you been hoping for
you the one you been looking for
If not you, then who
If not now, then when
Is a good time to begin
Something is calling

You are in a storm of thought that your thought began
Thoughts command your life so your thoughts you must command
We the ones weve been waiting for
We the ones we've been hoping for
We the ones we've been looking for
Something is calling
We’re the ones weve been searching for
We’re the ones weve been asking for
We’re the ones we've been singing for
Something is calling

If not you, then who
If now now, then when
Is a good time to begin
We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for
Track Name: Our Time
No you can’t fit the sea in a bottle
Nor can you count every grain of sand
No you can’t stare at the sun forever
Nor can you catch lightening in your hand
Just like I can’t fit the way I feel for you in a word
So I hope that this song will do

Here’s the way it goes
Here’s the way you know
Here’s the way it shows
My feelings for you
Like the river flows
Down into the sea
They become one
Just like you and me
Like the wind that blows
Clouds up in the sky
I know that together we can fly

No you can’t pull the stars from the sky
Nor can you stop time from passin’ by
No you cant stop the wind from blowin south
Nor can you catch all them raindrops in your mouth
No I can’t fit the way I feel for you in a word
So I hope that this song will do

Here’s the way it goes
Here’s the way you know
Here’s the way it shows
My feelings for you
Like the river flows
Down into the sea
They become one
Just like you and me
Like the wind that blows
Clouds up in the sky
I know that together we can fly

Sometimes I can’t believe its true
Sometimes when I’m here holding you
Sometimes hard to believe its true
Sometimes here I am with you

No you can’t push the waves back into the ocean
Nor can you undo what has been done
Just like I can’t fit the way I feel for you in a word
So I hope this song will do

Here’s the way it goes
Here’s the way you know
Here’s the way it shows
My feelings for you
Like the river flows
Down into the sea
They become one
Just like you and me
Like the wind that blows
Clouds up in the sky
I know that together we can fly

Its yours and mine
Its yours and its mine
Oh, yours and mine
Its our time, yeah
Its yours and mine
Oh yeah, I’m telling you
Yeah, I feel this is our time…
Track Name: Shadow of a Whip
If a good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
Why then do I take the trip?
I sing for the ones who’ve passed and gone
Or should I say they sing for me
Telling me of the time that they lived
Things they wish they would have done
Saying, “Son, it’s your time.”

A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
Why then do I take a sip
Oh now when the battle gets harder and harder
There’s too much fire and I need some water
A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
Why then do I take a sip
A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
And then a take a trip
A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
Hey I know, know I’m gonna get the whip, yeah

Destiny finds those who are listening
Fate catches up with all the rest
Are you heading all the callings and the warnings
Learn what you can
‘Cause its not a test, oh

Find in trees
Books in running brooks
There’s sermons in stones
And there’s stories from the bones

Because a good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
Why then do I take a sip
When I know the route its the same it was the last time
You take the trip
Then you pay the fine
A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
When then do I take the sip
A good horse runs by the shadow of a whip
I take a sip and then I take the trip
Track Name: King of Me
When you’re caught in the clutches of what you grab
You wield the knife but yourself you stab
What you hunt takes your power away
Hunter then becomes the prey
Release now from my bands
By the strength of my own hands
I am the King of me and my destiny
I am the gatekeeper of my mind
Like silence refused by the drum
To these falsities I will not succumb
And like darkness refused by the sun
I sing back these clouds of confusion
The time has come to sing forth for some
For whose time has come
To unite as one
Up from the shadows we come
Breaking the bonds of illusion
By the law that says we are all one
I’m up to get some self sovereignty
I am the king of me
Sovereignty
I am the king of me
And my destiny
I’m the gatekeeper of my mind
The intuiter of the sign
You rule you and I rule me
He that angers you, conquers you
She that brings you down has stolen you
Kings and queens, get your self sovereignty
Its about getting your mind free
Like silence refused by the drum
To these falsities I will not succumb
And like darkness refused by the sun
I sing back these clouds of illusion
The time has come to sing forth for some
For whose time has come
To unite as one
Up from the shadows we come
Breaking bonds of illusion
By the law that says we are all one
I hear a new song its called “self sovereignty”
I am the king of me
Sovereignty
I rule my destiny
Track Name: Many Have Not
When the many have a little and the few have a lot
History has taught
Guns will be shot
When the few have it all and the many have not
Wars have been fought
Solutions must be sought
Before the many rise
And take what the few have got
What the few have got

Backs are not ladders to be climbed for free
Things cant go on as they’ve gone before
Many have died so the rich could have more
We’ve got to make poverty history

When a child gets sold by an auctioneer
Got to interfere
The one who’s the profiteer
When the money means more than the atmosphere
Fools domineer
Situation’s severe
Now the beat gets strong
And deceit disappear
All becomes clear
Strength replaces fear
Life, not money, I revere

Backs are not ladders to be climbed for free
Things cant go on as they’ve gone before
Many have died so the rich could have more
We’ve got to make poverty history

Trickle down
Didn’t make it to the ground
So sayeth us
So sayeth the dust

When the many have a little and the few have a lot
History has taught
Guns will be shot
When the few have it all and the many have not
Wars have been fought
Solutions must be sought
Before the many rise
And take what the few have got
What the few have got

Backs are not ladders to be climbed for free
Things cant go on as they’ve gone before
Many have died so the rich could have more
We’ve got to make poverty history

When the many have a little and the few have a lot
When the few have it all and the many have not
Track Name: Aquarius
Something in the night killed the owl
And I’m telling you
it was not the wind
Somethings goin’ down
Times are changin’ up
Stop look and listen
Things are rearranging
Everything is changin’
Gotta get down to get up
Siftin through the ashes
What can you find
When everything is to be redefined
Hear the same voice saying again and again
Are you ready to begin

This is the age of aquarius
Upon us
Look at the times now and how they’re changing
This is the age of aquarius
Hear the sound of System Krush
What can’t bend, may break
Things can’t remain the same
The dawning of aquarius
The truth becomes us
Far beyond what we’ve been taught

Something in the night killed the owl
And I’m telling you
It was not the wind
Greatest story never told
Now begins to unfold
Things hard for us to believe
Things we can hardly conceive of
We are not alone
Nor have we ever been
The truth can’t remain hidden
Long it has been known
But never ever shown
Forbidden by the system
Said its been a long time coming
And its finally coming our way
Long time comin
And I’m so happy to say
Are you ready to begin
This is the age aquarius
Look at the wonder all around us
So many things we’ve never imagined before
This is the age of aquarius
See now the signs are telling us
Things are changing
Something’s happening
No one can deny
This is the age of aquarius
Look at the young ones among us
Dawning of aquarius
Like the moon is the dawn’s promise
So is this time
Upon us
This is the age of aquarius
Stars and the stones are telling us
This is the dawning of aquarius
Oh here we go
Track Name: Samauhay
Sahmauhay, oh, Sah
Sahmauhay, Sah
Love is the light
That makes the rainbow one
Love is the water that washes
All sins away
Love is the earth that give you
Everything you need
Love is the air that you breathe
Its infinity
Oh, ah…
Sahmauhay

Sahmauhay, sah, sah
Sahmauhay, sah
Sahmauhay, sah, sah
Sahmauhay, sah
Sahmauhay, sah, sah
Sahmauhay

Love is the fire that burns
Thoughts to reality
If light is the tongue of the creator
then love is its song indeed
If there would be one thing I would truly like to know
It would be love
Ah…
Sahmauhay…

Sahmauhay, sah, sah
Sahmauhay, sah
Sahmauhay, sah, sah
Sahmauhay, sah
Sahmauhay, sah, sah
Sahmauhay
Track Name: The Other Ones
Precious innocence
Stolen from the children
Any fool in love
Like guns and ammunition
Saw a broken heart
I tried to be kind
Said I was taught to hate
Said love is what youre made of
This child soldier
Forced to spill the blood
Of his brothers and sisters
Of the ones he loves
What he once knew as
Family and home
Had been turned
To blood, brick and bone

I lay down by a river of tears
And I add mine
I'm wondering
Oh how long
Shall they drink blood for wine?

I lay down by a river of tears
And I add mine

Caught in the crossfire
Children playing nearby
Out in the streets
Heard the shots, heard them cry
Scatter everywhere
No time to ask why
Some say hell is far
I saw it all that day
Someone else's war
That millions are killed for
Of the foolishness of the few
Innocence shot down
Many children die
Shattered hopes and dreams
Blood runs in the streams

I lay down by a river of tears
And I add mine
I'm wondering
Oh how long
Shall they drink blood for wine?

I lay down by a river of tears
And I add mine

They're not just the other ones

They're not just the other
The other ones

They're not just the other
The other ones
Track Name: Sekai's Song

Baby Sekai…
